Great spot in Kyoto

Great hotel with excellent service. Definitely dated decor but that’s part of its charm. Bikes for rent and excellent location.

Stay elsewhere.

This hotel is outdated and requires renovation. Our room was not clean and the tray that held glasses looked as if it had cigarette ashes on it. The tables and sideboard were dirty.

Good for westerners and had crib

Great spot for western travelers! Although we had 2 twin beds they were comfortable, especially compared to other hotels we’ve stayed at. They were able to supply a baby crib which was a hard to find elsewhere. We could adjust the thermostat which was also nice. The bathroom is small but not as small as other places. Wouldn’t recommend the hotel breakfast but it’s a short walk to fantastic French bakeries (Shinshindo is awesome). Subway and bus stops we’re nearby which made getting around easy. Overall would recommend!
